@ItsThatChick,
Oh, they'll be along in due time.

One song that leaps to my mind is Simon & Garfunkel's 'Sound of Silence'

@ItsThatChick,
Then again - there's the 1973 Spooky Tooth album title, 'You Broke My Heart So I Busted Your Jaw'

"It's a same difference, it makes no difference to me, she was pretty ugly, our love is bittersweet.

I first met Mary Joe on a rainy Sunday, I was a student teacher on a working vacation just hanging out in the industrial park. But that's old news.

She was eating fresh frozen jumbo shrimp off of paper china with plastic silverware, she offered me a bite but I said "No, thanks! It looks like it's been freezer burned."

Close by in the distance, I heard a dull roar of the elevated subway coming to a rolling stop.

Almost immediately, I turned back around and there was Mary Joe half naked. She took of her loose tights while I quicky shed my tight slacks before you know it we were both committing a cardinal sin, she was awful good.

It's a same difference, it makes no difference to me, she was pretty ugly, our love is bittersweet, good grief.

Well I can see my time is growing short, this song is an original copy of something that was recorded live, and as for me and Mary Joe well, we are happily married."

Then there's the famous folk song by Stephen Foster, "Oh! Susannah"...

"...It rained all night the day I left
The weather it was dry
The sun so hot, I froze to death
Susannah, don't you cry..."

Power in the Darkness Tom Robinson

Quote:
(Voice from The Other Side:) "Today, institutions fundamental to the British system of Government are under attack: the public schools, the house of Lords, the Church of England, the holy institution of Marriage, even our magnificent police force are no longer safe from those who would undermine our society, and it's about time we said 'enough is enough' and saw a return to the traditional British values of discipline, obedience, morality and freedom.
What we want is:

Freedom from the reds and the blacks and the criminals
Prostitutes, pansies and punks
Football hooligans, juvenile delinquents
Lesbians and left wing scum
Freedom from the niggers and the Pakis and the unions
Freedom from the Gipsies and the Jews
Freedom from leftwing layabouts and liberals
Freedom from the likes of you..."

Quote:
How could you believe me when I said "I Love You"
When you know I've been a liar all my life?
I've had that reputation since I was a youth -
You must have been insane to think I'd ever tell the truth.
How could you believe me when I said we'd marry,
When you know I'd rather die than that have a wife?
I know I said, "I'll make you mine,"
But who would know that you would go for that old line?
How could you believe me when I said "I Love You"
When you know I've been a liar, a good for nothing liar,
All my good for nothin' life?
